2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Visual: Neat artwork but label and bottle seem a bit plain compared to whatís out there today. Ah well only $5. Pours cola black with virtually no head, super thin ringed retention, barely visible activity.
Nose: fresh deep roast coffee on the nose. (10)-aromatic strength.
Attack: sharp crispness, incoming dark malts
Mid-palate: (5)-sweetness, medium coffee bitterness -> med-high coffee sourness, (MAIN) burnt-roasted coffee, malts (HINT) cola, licorice
Finish: (6)-palate roughness, fizzy/burpy, medium-bitter coffee finish.
Summary: This drinks like a chilled fizzy coffee-cola with a noticeable alcoholic kick. Overall an average brew that has a decent taste but lacks in texture and depth.(Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)

650ml brown bottle. Deep brown/blackish pour. Light brown foam, clingy lacing and a nice light froth covering the surface. Coffee aroma, a bit of metallic roasted notes as well. Taste has a nice rich coffee note, roasted malts. Dry finish with roast and coffee grounds. Light in the mouth, which I find pleasant for the style. Overall, enjoyable brew and one of the better Mt. Begbie beers Iíve come across.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours black in color with a small light brown head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by coffee with hints of chocolate and roasted grains. Taste is also dominated by coffee with some chocolate malty sweetness and roasted grain bitterness. Medium to heavy body with moderate carbonation. Would be a little better if the coffee was not so dominant and allowed some of the other flavors and aromas to shine through.

Bottle - Dark roast coffee, chocolate and roast malts. Jet black with a brown head that is bubbly and dissipates pretty quick. Rich bodied stout with coffee and chocolate notes. Finish is bitter but is balanced with the strong flavors. So much coffee its hard to introduce or make out other flavors, nice if you like coffee.
